In this fishing village of Marsaxlokk, tradition holds that these Maltese fishing boats (luzzos – the multi-colored wooden ones) are passed down from generation to generation – grandfather to father to son – and repainted in the same colors as their father before them to preserve their heritage.
The eyes placed on the boats are also in keeping with a tradition/superstition that the eyes represent a symbol of protection and good health, keeping the fisherman from harm while out at sea.
